Tips for the Best Air Fryer Boneless Chicken Wings
- If you plan to serve the wings later, store the buffalo sauce separately until you’re ready to enjoy. This keeps the coating delightfully crunchy.
- Thoroughly pat the chicken dry before placing it in the air fryer. This minimizes excess moisture and helps achieve that coveted crispy texture.
- When sprinkling the seasonings, make sure there’s an even distribution with no clumps.
- Give the chicken pieces enough space in the air fryer basket. This promotes proper air circulation and allows each piece to cook uniformly.
- Use an Instant-Read Meat Thermometer to check the internal temperature. This guarantees the chicken is thoroughly cooked (at 165 degrees F) and safe to enjoy.
